The GodgfatherColts Neck, New Jersey, Dec 24, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) I just recently after so many years got down to watching these movies and to tell you the truth i enjoyed them all very throughly.

First i'll explain the 1st godfather as follows. In this criticaly aclaimed masterpiece Francis ford coppola really focuses on central themes of human life such as family moral decline struggle to survive nad the changing of times. The film starts off with an elaborate wedding ceremony for the don's only daughter connie . At this wedding we quickly get a well detailed look at how this family operates . We also met several of our primary characters the reluctant son michael played brilliantly by Al pacino in all 3 films Sonny the hot tempered son played by James cann and Kay michael's girlfriend who he promised to he would never become his "Family". The film later shows a attmpt to kill the don after he refuses an offer to join the narcotics bussiness and this leads michael to step in and avenge his father which later starts his transformation into the new don. The way coppola weaves between the multiple story arcs here is great every scene , line, performance and sub-plot added to the film minor or major. The cinematography is gorgeous and the vilonce has a smart, simple yet brutally effective ring to it. The middle holds up quite well and the pacing is held together very well something the other two are good at as well. The acting is phenomal and the feeling here is really humantisic and real and it shows throghout . the dialouge is brilliant with lines you won't forget. The characters are very well-written and the ending is very memorable and intense. overall the elements , subject matter ,writing and feel of the film are very well done and beautifully written and make this film a must-see smart, humanistic , real gritty , engaging and original grade A+
